    I think Tinkerbelle the Wonderchick is living up to her advance billing. Today we pulled a 4 ounce egg from the nesting box, clearly twice the size of any other egg we have had, I have a feeling this isn't a double yolker, may be a single or a tripple but I just have a feeling it isn't a double. The egg is huge, I hope she didn't hurt herself laying it. They were all out for a long time over the weekend eating anything they could catch or scratch up. I'll try to post a picture with some other regular sized eggs next to it. Has anyone else had this happen to them?
